Dear *|IF:FNAME|**|FNAME|*,*|ELSE:|*Reader,

Singapore-headquartered agricultural commodity firm Agrocorp International Pte allotted shares worth [redacted] million to its founders and executives this week.

The family business specialises in the processing and sale of staples such as wheat, pulses, and rice to food manufacturers in the Asia-Pacific and Middle East. In August last year, Agrocorp launched its plant-based cheese, HerbYvore, which it claims is Singapore’s first plant-based, nut-free cheese. It has also partnered with one of Japan’s largest dairy companies to start a manufacturing facility in Malaysia by 2025 to produce soy-free plant protein.

The company has previously secured debt financing from development finance institutions such as International Finance Corporation and Dutch lender FMO, as well as Rabobank. It claims to generate annual revenue of over $3 billion.

Singapore-based circular economy platform Ideation3X, which is targeting the integrated solid waste management sector in India, has raised additional capital from Mizuho Bank in Series B funding.

The company, which is backed by Japanese private equity firm Unison Capital Group, had secured $10 million as part of the same round from Yokogawa Electric Corporation in January last year.

Founded in 2017, the company collects, sorts, treats and recycles solid waste and converts the rest into fuel using patented technologies.
